Bright Energy Saving Villages: Solar Lighting Technologies for the Last Mile

This project is managed by Kopernik Solutions and implemented by PT Kopernik on behalf of our client.

In partnership with Philips, the Kampung Terang Hemat Energi (Bright Energy Saving Villages) initiative is working towards providing 1,200 solar lighting technologies in North Sumatra, Central Kalimantan, East Bali and Maluku in 2017-2018.

THE PROBLEM

While Indonesia’s electrification ratio stood at 88 percent last year according to PLN- Indonesia's state-owned electricity supplier - power remains limited and does not reach the most remote regions of the country. People living in the last mile often lack access to the PLN supply and rely on alternative lighting solutions, such as kerosene lamps which can be dangerous as they emit toxic smoke and increase risk of fire.

THE SOLUTION

Through this initiative, Kopernik will assist in the distribution of 1,200 Philips solar home systems and solar energy-based road lights in North Sumatra, East Bali, Central Kalimantan and Maluku. Kopernik works towards lighting up last mile unelectrified villages through safer, affordable and cleaner alternative solutions.


THE EXPECTED IMPACT

Through the distribution of cleaner, cost-saving and risk-reducing alternative energy to last mile communities, Kopernik anticipates improved productivity through longer studying and business hours, and safer environments.
